The search is on to find Mr. Gay Louth and the competition is to take place in Drogheda for the first time since Drogheda man Carl Nash won it back in 2002.
Apart from being great fun, this competition is all about raising awareness of issues concerning the LGBT community such as staying safe, HIV awareness and how to be a role model for the LGBTQ community.
“The competition is open to the public to vote for the person they think should win the title of Mr Gay Louth 2018” said organiser Peter James Nugent.
You can vote by visiting the Drogheda LGBTQ Facebook page and writing the name of the person you think would represent Mr Gay Louth and why in a comment.
